3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW via mobile

The room was adequate and clean. The place has good bones but has not been maintained. The upper pool was clean and quiet. The lower pool was cloudy perhaps due to sawdust from the construction. There are a lot of variations on amenities- we got one with twin beds, a fan and away from the construction. Breakfast included is good.

I stayed in this nice hotel for 5 days and this was a good choice, because a standard room cost only ca 7€ and it was a very clean room and everything seems new. Outside in front of your room you have an own place for sitting and relaxing with nice view ... You have a big choice for swimming... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our stay at Lake Toba. The ferry from town dropped us off right in front of Samosir Cottages which was nice. The place seemed bigger than it should be based on the number of guests and they're building more rooms so it must get more visitors during the summer months. The rooms were... More

I think staying here is the right choice during a visit to the island of Samosir. Lodging that prioritizes comfort with quiet atmosphere. Complete with a bar and restaurant there is a menu with delicious food and refreshing drinks. The hotel staff were friendly and always ready when needed.

* Location: good location and by the water but there was construction of the new wing when I visited which was never mentioned my the hotel. * Room: very basic. * Service: basic service, nothing was outstanding. * Transportation: Hotel could get you a scooter. * Food: better food option down the street close by at Jenny's.

Having had an excellent time in Bukit Lawang prior to our arrival, I was sadly disappointed by our overall time spent on Pulau Samosir. While there are a few places to stay in Tuk Tuk, none of them really stood out. Due to the 8 hour journey and the late arrival we decided to head where the other travellers were... More

Me and my sister spent 2 nights here on 23-24 November. The last time I came here was December 2010 or January 2011. Then they had spacious and nice restaurant atmosphere but the room was oldie. Now with the renovation which is still on going, they have nice room with bathtub and flat TV to watch during the night. Next... More

I found the place clean and well kept; the room - a Deluxe - was nice, the staff too, and the prices both for the room (500k) and the food, very reasonable. However, they are building a new pool and new rooms; the whole front area is a construction site, I would therefore avoid the place until they are finished.

Stayed three nights. Our room had hot water and was modern an clean. Though obviously they had forgotten to empty the trash cans (especially the one in the bathroom with the toilet paper...) and put no towels in the room. We had a sea side room with a look at the ongoing dock works (instructive) and a first row seat... More
